Claro calls for introduction of MNP

30 Jan 2019

Claro Uruguay, the local telecoms unit of Mexico’s America Movil (AM), has called on the government to introduce number portability. According to El Observador, which cites a report by El Pais, Claro states that number portability is a basic right of consumers and that not offering the service is a barrier to effective competition in the market. The firm adds that if the implementation of number portability is still not considered by the Regulatory Unit of Communications Services (Unidad Reguladora de Servicios de Comunicaciones, URSEC), then it will consider taking legal action.
